So today this guy came in and we had this conversation:

Customer: You have bicycle in store?
Me: No.
C: Why not? Tell me now. I demand answer.
Me: I don't know. Seriously. I don't!
C: Why not?
Me: I don't know!
C: 1970, you have bicycles. 1980, bicycles. Now, no bicycles.
Me: ...
C: You sell horses?
Me: No.
C: Why not?
Me: ...
C: The store go bad since 1970. I come all the time in 1970. You work at store in 1970?
Me: No. (Note: I am 21.)
C: You not work here long then?
Me: No.
C: You sure no bicycles? No horses?
Me: Yes.
C: Okay, bye. *walks off*


Then ten minutes later, literally the next customer:

Customer: I need to return this.
Me: Do you have a receipt?
C: No. How long is the warranty?
Me, to co-worker: How long is the warranty on a hydraulic jack?
Co-worker: one year
C: I've had it for a year and a half
Me: Did you buy an extended warranty?
C: No.
Co-worker: Let me call management and see if your purchase is still in the system. *talks to manager on phone*
C: This store is horrible! I am not coming back! I can't believe this is only supposed to last a year! I paid a lot of money for it!
Co-worker: *hangs up phone* Sorry, but we can't take it back.
C: WELL YOU CAN SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS!!!!!!! *slams jack on counter and stomps out the door*

So the jack was greasy, dripping grease all over the counter, and we were both staring at it, until we decided to bag it up and leave it outside by the tractors in case he came back, because sometimes they do.

And all that in first half hour of work!

Homer : Excuse me, do you sell ponies?
Pet shop Owner:: Uh, sure, pal. Right here. [points at a cage]
Homer: [reads the sign] Scottish deer hound. Hey! This is a dog!
Pet Shope Owner: Oh, my friend, you're smarter than I gave you credit for!

Bicycles? That I can understand in some stores, like a large sporting goods store or something.

But HORSES? Since when where those ever sold in horses? Was this guy on crack? Or just really old and completely senile?

Oh, you would have LOVED the radio station ID I did for my college radio station. I mentioned it in another thread. Sound bites of Bart Simpson and myself talking back and forth, basically about the station. Amazing what scripting and leading comments can do to prerecorded stuff. :D

I'm laughing so hard, I can barely type. Some people are psycho.

At least he didn't insist that you check in the back for horses :lol:

Could you imagine trying to get those off the top of a gondola? :p

We have horses for sale, but I only have one that's broke to ride at the moment, the rest are too young yet.

So, those 10 years that I wanted a horse but didn't have one, I could have just gone to the nearby store and bought one??? The closest thing I have is a PetSmart with a State Line Tack department - but no horses for sale.
